LG Uplus has completed a three-month long trial of its Intelligent Network Platform (INP) that leverages Nokia's Liquid Applications, realizing faster content delivery for large files. According to LG, they have achieved up to 35% performance gain in content delivery with reduced latency for big objects of 10-30 MB. Nokia's Liquid Applications adds general-purpose computing, content storage, and access to real-time radio and network information, and makes the base station a hub for local service creation and delivery. 

The INP platform stores video content on a server that is directly attached to an LTE base station, enabling more efficient and faster video streaming. LG claims that the trial also showed around 90% operating and capital cost saving in the mobile backhaul link.  The LG Uplus INP is loaded with rich Liquid Applications features, including Content Caching, Video Optimization, CDN Integration and Enterprise Zone.

CDNetworks, a global leader in the CDN space, also participated in the trial to evaluate the Liquid Applications’ impact on its commercial CDN service offerings.

Jo Changkil, Vice President, Technology Development Center, LG Uplus
We want to take our customers’ service experience to new levels while providing high quality video contents. With the strategic partnership with Nokia Networks, we will have an edge over the delivery of rich multi-media content and enterprise services. Nokia’s Liquid Applications will create new revenue models outside the traditional telco areas.

Dirk Lindemeier, Business Product Manager for Liquid Applications at Nokia Networks
The successful trial of content delivery and Enterprise Zone proves the capability of Nokia’s Liquid Applications to redefine the customer experience. In conjunction with Nokia’s AppFactory concept, an ecosystem of developers will drive fast application development and deployment, resulting in new services that can be introduced within very short timeframes. With this, LG Uplus can drive network-based service innovation.
